Cincinnati marathon runner accused of carrying loaded gun, commenting about terrorism

CINCINNATI — A prosecutor says a Flying Pig Marathon participant accused of carrying a loaded gun and commenting about terrorism during the Cincinnati race events has been charged with menacing by stalking and weapons counts.

The Hamilton County prosecutor says 49-year-old David Moore of suburban Cincinnati was indicted Monday on a count of menacing by stalking and various weapons charges including carrying a concealed weapon.

The prosecutor says Moore talked about terrorism and complained to the director of the May 5 race about his race bib number. The prosecutor says Moore also asked the director about her relationship status and asked to speak on stage.

Police say Moore opened his coat to reveal a loaded 9 mm gun when asked if he was armed.

Court records don’t list an attorney for Moore.

    Nothing in the article really demonstrates that he did anything illegal. Who was the victim of his stalking? What illegal thing did he do with his firearm?

      It’s also been alleged that he was gazing at geese that were flying overhead while being armed.

      He talked about terrorism and didn’t say work place related violence or some other PC term

      If he doesn’t have a CCW he can’t have his gun concealed , which if it was under his coat that would definitely be concealed.
